Ciudad Juarez - Post Report Question and Answers

Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

It's pre installed. Internet is fast and prices are comparable to the US. - Feb 2023

It is already installed when you arrive, and is very affordable. We upgraded to a medium package to stream on multiple devices at once and it is about $30/month.

Internet is connected when you arrive, which is great. I think people's experience varies, but I've been stunned by how good our service is. For about US$24/month we have a phone line and internet service good enough that sometimes my two kids and I have all been streaming different things on three different devices with no buffering. At peak times that might not happen but it's rare that we have any trouble at all. It's possible to pay more for faster internet but we haven't seen the need. - Dec 2015
